The Major Taylor Fellowship

The Major Taylor Fellowship

Our goal is to give somebody amazing a starting point in wine. They'll work 30 hours per week at Domestique, learning all the ins-and-outs of running a wine retail operation. We've also facilitated stages at three award-winning restaurants: Komi, Bad Saint, and 2AMYS. And our partner, Streetsense, will organize three days of programming centered around finding a restaurant space, design and buildout, and branding strategy.

We are looking to address, challenge, and disrupt the clear lack of diversity in wine and strongly encourage people of color and from disenfranchised communities to apply. The fellowship will last three weeks and will include a $3,000 stipend, plus we'll pay for your housing costs. We're planning to announce the recipient a month from now, with the fellowship beginning in August or September. Come join our team. We're fun and the wine is pretty good.

Eligibility and fit with the fellowship:
Must have authorization to work in the United States and must be over the age of 21
Must have fewer than five years of related experience in the food or beverage industries

Application timeline:
June 23rd - July 10th: Application live
July 12th: Semi-finalists selected and all applicants notified
July 14th - 16th: Phone calls with semi-finalists
Week of July 20th: Fellowship recipient announced
3-week fellowship scheduled between weeks of August 3rd - September 28th
